Top Tobacco went above and beyond merely filing an opposition proceeding against National Tobacco Company’s “STRAIGHT UP” trademark application. Counsel for TOP did its research on National Tobacco’s filing history (readers of Cigarlaw.com will recognize National Tobacco as a common party in trademark cases posted here). TOP took it a step further, check out the allegations regarding the Controlled Substances Act and the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. This is a spicy meatball.
